Top Pete Werner News

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Will return Sunday

    Werner (elbow) will play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Werner missed the Saints' Week 14 contest against the Jets, but after practicing in full Friday, he has been cleared from the injury report. The rookie should return to his rotational role in the Saints' linebacker unit Sunday in the matchup against the Buccaneers.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Sitting out Week 14

    Werner (elbow) won't play Sunday against the Jets, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Werner's usage on defense had declined in recent weeks, but the rookie second-round pick has been a mainstay on special teams for the Saints. With Kaden Elliss (hamstring) also sidelined, the Saints will be thin at linebacker despite having their starters available.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Makes six stops vs. Seahawks

    Werner had six tackles (five solo) during Monday's 13-10 win over the Seahawks.

    Werner had his lowest tackle total as a starter versus Seattle, and he wasn't involved elsewhere on the stat sheet. Still, the rookie second-round pick did log two straight games with double-digit stops prior to Monday's showing, so he remains worthy of IDP fantasy consideration ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Double-digit tackles again

    Werner notched 13 tackles (eight solo) during New Orleans' win over Washington in Week 5.

    Werner has 23 tackles over his last two contests, and he played a season-high 99 percent of defensive snaps versus the Football Team. As long as Kwon Alexander (elbow) remains sidelined, Werner will remain in the mix as a potential IDP starter. After a Week 6 bye, the Saints will take on the Seahawks on Oct. 25.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Big tackling day

    Werner managed 10 tackles (six solo) during the Saints' loss to the Giants in Week 4.

    Werner put together his best tackling day of his young career during last weekend's loss, in which he handled 63 percent of defensive snaps. The rookie second-round pick's IDP value is clearly on the rise, but fantasy managers may want to wait for a larger sample size before trusting him in lineups.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Full participant in practice

    Werner (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Werner's full participation in practice is an upgrade from the limited practice he logged Wednesday. The rookie linebacker will likely be ready for the Saints' Week 3 contest against the Patriots.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Out Week 2

    Werner (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Panthers.

    No surprise here, as Werner was a non-participant at practice all week. His absence could lead to Andrew Dowell seeing some extra snaps providing depth at weakside linebacker.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Ready for Week 1

    Werner (leg) isn't listed on the Saints' injury report Wednesday.

    Werner was able to suit up for the Saints' preseason win over the Jaguars, however, the linebacker didn't see any snaps. After missing most of August battling his leg injury, Werner seems to be good to go for Sundays' opener against the Packers.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Suits up Monday

    Werner (leg) suited up for Monday's preseason victory over the Jaguars, Larry Holder of The Athletic reports.

    Werner didn't see any snaps after also missing the preseason opener with an undisclosed leg injury. However, after missing almost two weeks, the fact Werner suited up Monday suggests his return could be near.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Sidelined with leg injury

    Werner (leg) is not practicing Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    The nature and severity of Werner's right leg injury remain undisclosed, and he doesn't have much time remaining before the Saints' preseason opener against Baltimore on August 14. That said, the rookie second-round pick still has roughly a month to recover before the regular-season opener against Green Bay.
